UNC is conducting its MBA application review process in four rounds this season. The Early Action date is intended for prospective students who are sure that the Kenan-Flagler MBA is their first choice. Early Action admits are required to submit a $3,000 deposit to secure their place in the class enrolling in Fall 2021; this deposit amount is twice that of the regular decision rounds.
International applicants should note that UNC encourages them to apply in Round 3 or earlier.
Applicants should note that all submissions are due by 11:59 p.m. EST.
UNC Kenan-Flagler’s 2020-2021 MBA application deadlines are as follows:
|Round||Application Deadline||Decision Release||Deposit Due|
|Early Action||October 13, 2020||December 14, 2020||January 11, 2021|
|Round 2||January 5, 2021||March 8, 2021||April 5, 2021|

|Round 4||April 12, 2021||May 24, 2021||June 7, 2021|
*Round 3 is the final deadline for international applicants.
Candidates are required to have completed a bachelor’s degree or its equivalent. Applicants must submit with the online application form a professional resume (no more than two pages), unofficial copies of all academic transcripts (official copies are required upon enrollment), GMAT or GRE scores, responses to essay questions, two professional recommendations, and the $150 application fee.
Non-native English speakers need to provide a TOEFL, IELTS, or PTE Academic test score unless they have earned an undergraduate or graduate degree at a U.S. college or university, their education was completed exclusively in English in an English-speaking country, or they received an undergraduate or graduate degree from a university in Hong Kong or India. Some candidates from India may still be required to provide test scores.
When Does Kenan-Flagler Issue Invitations to Interview?
Candidates have two interview options: the Campus Open Interview Season and the Invitation-Only Interview Season. The open interview season is from September through October. Candidates can self-register at least nine days prior to the desired date.
Invitations are extended to selected candidates via e-mail. Those invited to interview will receive specific instructions on how to schedule an interview on campus or via webcam. There is no specific interview notification date. Candidates may receive an invitation at any time after application submission, up until the day of the admissions decision release. Candidates who do not receive an interview invitation prior to the decision release date will be notified of either a denial of admission or waitlist offer.
